    Does that mean the kids that chawed and got cancer because of Tony Gwynn's influence can sue his Estate?

    Can't really use the "I didn't know it would hurt me" excuse. Fucker was the same age as me and they warned us all the time. Same as smoking.

    Total bullshit lawsuit.
    The money train is empty and that wife of his who always had the rep of burning thru money is now hurting for cash.
    T. Gwynn knew exactly wut he was getting into with the chew.
    He loved food and the chew.
    Luv ya Tony but you asked for it.
    Case dismissed.

    It's hard to believe that in this great country people are actually allowed to waste the judicial system's time with this kind of shit.

    Since the 1960's the use of tobacco was linked to cancer. Since the 1970's every cigarette pack has had a Surgeon General's warning. So Tony Gwynn had know there were risks. The only hope the Gwynn family has is that the tobacco industry managed to sell smokeless tobacco has somehow being less dangerous. So they may get them on fraud. That's what got the cigarette companies.

    So is he claiming that he didn't know that chewing tobacco causes cancer? Sounds like a stretch.

    TV Guide has a gallery of all their covers you can search. I typed in Wade Boggs/Red Sox/Baseball and got
    no results for Wade on any cover.
